Final goodbye

Happy Friday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

We're going to have to deal with a little bit of fog this AM but after that it's all sunshine. 40 degrees right now, and we'll be in the 60s by the afternoon. Meteorologist Julia Weiden will let us know how our weekend weather will play out in her First Alert Forecast.

Starting this morning people have their final opportunity to say goodbye to Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, who died March 4. Today Lumumba will lie in repose at Jackson City Hall and the public is invited to attend. Jewell Hillery will join us live with a rundown of scheduled events leading up to Lumumba's funeral on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the search for two-year-old Myra Lewis continues in Madison County. Investigators have set up a command center not far from where the girl was last seen on Saturday, March 1.

And, always here to put a smile on our face on Fridays, Julie Levanway joins us live in studio. She's whipping up some cilantro and lime infused shrimp Fresh From the Flame. Julie's making it live on the WLBT AM Report at 6:15.

All of that and much more is heading your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7, and Mississippi News Now continues on FOX 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday and an even better weekend!
